|Today is Christmas 2010. Today, I'm wondering what the children in places like Haiti woke up to. Here in the U.S. my grandsons are no doubt already tossing this gift and that aside, bored with it all. And, at the opposite end of the spectrum, certain others are weeping from hunger. Where did we go wrong? Will there ever be happiness again?

|A RIVETING WORK...PHRASES THAT STRIKE THE 'BELL OF DOOM' WITH EVERY WORD...AND IT'S UNDERSTANDABLE, WHAT WITH THE CONDITIONS, SOME OF WHICH YOU MENTIONED, THAT EXIST. YET, THE 'PROMISED LAND' STILL AWAITS US...BUT, BECAUSE OF BAD CHOICES IN THE 'BEGINNING', WE MUST 'PASS THROUGH' THIS WORLD TO GET THERE. I PRAY THAT MANY 'LITTLE HANDS', HAVE AND WILL...MAKE IT...FOR 'HE' LOOKS BEYOND THE OUTER APPEARANCE AND SEES THE HEART. AN EXCELLENT WORK...ENJOYED. THANKS FOR SHARING AND GOD BLESS.
LOVE, JOYCE * HIS INSPIRATIONS

|Powerful penn. For sure.
But if this is about America, then where has the America gone that we read about.
If it's about Africa's poor. Then debts must be written off, in the way that Great Britain has. (safe guards) If not, then love begins at home.
When I was last in America NY. I saw ex Nam soldiers outside the Central on 42nd. Once the sally army had told me who I was speaking to. I was amazed at NYers, spitting and ignoring, walking over these American Heroes. I was disgusted. Yup I did give the money to have them in a hotel for awhile. But I realised the gulf and culture difference betwixt two nations.
So how can such a child be murdered by a nations govt? America. Has it lost its back bone. Is the generation now degeneration?

|I often look back at my life as a child in a family of ten kids in post WWII era and wonder what my parents who struggled and went without so much to raise us would think of todays society if they were still alive. Great write and a solid statement.

|Every time I read of situations such as this, I think of little JonBenet Ramsey. Our world is swirling into a sewage pit. I am not guiltless in this, I have contributed to it, but at least I found a way to stop and come out of my descent. But these people think there is nothing wrong with dressing their little girls up to look like a tramp for the money they can bring in. Good words to the wise here, Diana.|
